Black History Month Celebration
Crocker Art Museum, 11am, no cover
In celebration of Black History Month, the Crocker is opening its many doors to the public, free of charge. The festivities are plentiful and diverse. Thrive Choir, an incredibly distinct vocal group from Oakland, will perform songs of revolution. Black and Beautiful Artisans Marketplace will be present, featuring local artisans’ wares. Visitors can take in Sacramento Regional Transit’s Old Blue “Rosa Parks” bus, take part in arts activities based on the work of Jacob Lawrence and take advantage of children’s entertainment from Julian Dixon and his Tuba Time Tunnel and storyteller Diane Ferlatte. The BlyueRose Dance Project will provide a performing primer on the history of the African-American experience. 216 O Street, crockerart.org.
